My Reviews

RESTClient, a debugger for RESTful web services.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems to send cookies for me, and is certainly very handy. Thanks for the great app!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2.9). 

Hide All Toolbars

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

very handy extension. some others replicate similar functionality (e.g. hide find bar), but it's nice having it all in one package. it would be nice being able to configure hotkeys for different toolbars, though, and change the hotkey bindings from within this extension

Net Notes

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Handy addon, works as described. The hotkey feature is crucial (make sure you open a new window after you change hotkey settings, otherwise the changes won't work). Thanks!

Combine Stop-Reload Buttons

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

works pretty well! my only complaint is that sometimes the stop button fails to actually stop a page loading (seems to happen occasionally on frame-heavy pages), in which case it's not possible to reload the page. other than that, i've been really appreciating my extra 15px of toolbar space :)

Find All

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I'm a big fan of this extension. It works exactly as advertised, and plays nicely with other find bar extensions I have installed (Hide Find Bar, and a regular expressions Find Bar). I wish it were default functionality!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1). 

keywordManager

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

the button is there as promised, and the popup list showed all the bookmarks i had already set up. it also recognized a new bookmark i added fine. my only complaint is that you have to double-click the text of the bookmark title, not merely anywhere on the bar. it also might be handy having a "details" button, or something, which replicated the double-click functionality.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.7.1). 

Get File Size

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

works pretty well. you just right-click a link, and click "get file size" in the context menu. on one link i tried it on it simply said that no file size could be computed -- not sure why. other than that exactly as advertised

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.93). 

Send Page By Email

good, but other options Rated 3 out of 5 stars

i was interested in adding this type of functionality to fx, and i found this extension, as well as shareaholic and a few others. in the end though i was disappointed by lack of usability on most accounts.

so, as an exercise, i wrote another one that uses a quick and easy "popout sidebar" interface (just move your mouse to the bottom left corner of the window). it sends emails from my servers, enables import of GMail contacts, automatically parses subject and description of page, and allows you to see when the link you've sent is clicked.

if you're interested, you can download the addon at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/8504, but before you begin using it you must create an account at http://slingalink.com/create-account.
